Mini Mariner’s Compass

The quilt guild I belong to is getting geared up for their quilt show the end of this summer and have asked for mini quilts that they can put in the silent auction to raise money.  I thought it would be fun to putter around with a tiny project that I could finish quickly.

I pulled out some fabrics that I thought would go together.  My husband was skeptical about purple & green but I think it looks nice together.  I paper pieced the compass part and then just kept adding borders until I thought it was big enough.  It’s around 16 or 17 inches square.  Can you tell I didn’t do a lot of planning/measuring for this one?  I did straight line quilting but still have to add the binding.
